Rookie - 105 Points (19, April,1951 / kalubovila East, Sri Lanka)


I have been to a Social Services Agency today in California.
I was interviewed by a very kind and a polite Lady.
The building and the environment too very attractive.
She explained and gave me the writ.
'Your household's application for food stamps has been denied.
Here's why: You or a member of your household does not meet the requirements of United States Citizenship or eligible Non-Citizen status as established by food stamp regulations.
Your application for Medical dated today has been denied because you are not eligible for any of the following programs:
Medically needy program for a family with a child whose parent(s) is/are absent from home, deceased, incapacitated, unemployed, or working with limited earnings or Medically needy program for the aged, blind or disabled or Medically indigent program for pregnant women or Medically indigent for persons under 21.
Here's why:
You are not blind or disabled and you are not aged.
You are not pregnant.
You are age 21 or older, but under 65.
On the way back home I thanked God!
For not blind or disabled me and still not aged.
But I have some regrets as my beloved had a surgery before in the Uterus
And I too had a surgery in my Scrotum,
So we never get pregnant.

    The indifference of kind social workers
    is legendary. The ironic words at the end
    of your poem expresses your disappointment.

    Kind wishes,

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
